Abstract

Infection by Plesiomonas (Aeromonas) shigelloides has been infrequently reported, and most human isolates have been from stool. Only one case of severe pediatric infection by this species has been described. The few additional disease-associated isolates have been from trauma-related cellulitis of the extremities and, principally, from patients with gastrointestinal disturbances. This report documents a second case of severe Plesiomonas (Aeromonas) shigelloides infection (sepsis and leptomeningitis) in a neonate.
